mixed veggie & chickpea salad w/ feta for lunching

grapes & HB eggs for more snackage

chickpea pot pie for dinner - prepared on the weekend
Here's the recipe: Chickpea Pot Pie and I used this crust instead of puff pastry: Whole Grain Crust. (Found both from Susan @ The Great Balancing Act). HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
three cheers for leftovers!

I tend to eat the same snacks Got any ideas for me??

Happy Hump Day! If all goes well, this should be my last post on Blogger!

I can never participate in WIAW. Who wants to see pictures of my breakfast - quarter of an apple that wouldn't fit in Jones' apple container for school + crusts off of Shoo's PB&J + coffee. Can't believe I'm actually admitting that LOL.

misszippy said... truly had an Amanda-inspired day of eating there! That had all my favorites in it!

One snack idea--making your own trail mix. Almonds, dried edamame, dark chocolate chips and dried cherries is one I love.

Can't wait to see the new product!

I do almond butter and apples for a snack or almonds. I struggle with breakfast...since I am usually eating it in the car driving!! LOVE the hat!!

Scarlett said...

Dont you get hungry? That doesnt look like a lot of for someone who exercises as much as you do! I run much less and def eat a lot more. Sigh. I love eating:)

Emz said...

Love mcm's comment. ;)

Love the hat!!

i've been noshing on frozen grapes lately

Teamarcia said...

MCM is not alone in her crust habit. Although I was good yesterday, probably because I participated in WIAW today!
I need to investigate that chickpea pot pie.

Laura said...

We always have a big container of trail mix on hand - dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, choc chips and almonds.

WIDW, empty beer cans on the garage floor. I thought you were Canadian, where's the Molson?

Runners Fuel said...

I eat the same snacks too. I eat grapes, apples, hb eggs, maybe some toast w/PB, and I like canned corn.

Anonymous said...

Seriously jonesin' for that chickpea pot pie! Definitely making it once we get back from vacation :)

My snacks tend to be pretty similar most days, too! apple + nuts OR granola + yogurt OR {seasonal fruit} + some dry cereal or mixed nuts. Or a Larabar, ha.

Amber said...

I'm pretty sure I'm going to turn into a clementine soon I've been eating so many. YUM!

That dark chocolate dreams PB would get me out of bed for a morning run any day too!!

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

I eat the same snacks all the time as well. Favorites for me right now are air popped popcorn and veggies with hummus. YUM!

Jason said...

I gotta say you eat very very clean. I love it.

Now at the end you wrote Happy Hump Day....If all goes well and that is where my wind wandered off like a 15 year old boy.

BTW - I am still cracking up about your comment on Beth's blog.....HI-LARRY-US!!!!!

J said...

I totally want to do WIAW but I feel like everyone would get bored because I always eat the same thing for lunch and breakfast!!

Char said...

I don't often go further than fruit for snacking - and a skinny cappuccino. But if I'm really hungry I'll have a slice of fruit toast or a homemade pumpkin scone.

Lindsay said...

dang marlene. you're so healthy. i need to remember to get grapes. those are a good snack! i need to lay off the chips... seriously. a bag a day probably isn't helping my buddha belly eh?

i do think you need to quit smoking though. i can't imagine that makes the oranges taste very good.

Run Jess Run said...

You gave me a bunch of snack ideas for HBBC. Woot!
